Hmmm interesting... vdelivermail could stop trying to use .qmail files
altogether and simply rely totaly on SQL.
One way to do this would be to merge maildrop's filtering laguage and
mailbot's autoresponder functionalty into vdelivermail. Perhaps
something like a sub-module.
The point here is that vdelivermail would read ALL the settings from SQL
and take care of everything right down to dropping the mail in the
Well that would take care of our SETUID problems.
My 2 cents,
